Around 2 PM, as Cliff was getting ready to go to work, I noticed the temperature was 45°. Considering how long it's been since I've had a long horseback ride, I figured it was plenty warm to ride, as long as I bundled up.
I've had many pleasant rides when it was that temperature... but that was when the sun was shining and there wasn't any wind. Oh, I enjoyed the ride, and Blue did his job with gusto and energy. But after an hour and a half out there in the wind, I was uncomfortably cold, and my toes were numb.
Still, I'm glad I seized the opportunity.
